Shameless Plugs



Hi all

At risk of seeming to monopolise this blog, this is just a short post to do some plugging. But it's going to get shameless, I'm afraid.


As well as seeing the publication of the latest MNW title, Cover the Mirrors, by Faye L. Booth (Plug1), Friday 2nd November also sees, or hears, the airing of a new Inspector Devlin story, The Lost Child, as part of the Big Chill Week on BBC Radio 4 at 3.30pm (Plug 2).

The Sunday Times recently ran a feature on Devlin's first appearance in print, Borderlands. (Plug 3) Anyone feeling so inclined can read the piece at their leisure here:




The piece was written by Irish crime novelist, Declan Burke, whose recent novel, The Big O, independently published in Ireland, is garnering sickeningly outstanding reviews. So much so, in fact, that US publisher, Harcourt, have signed Declan up on a two book deal. (Plug 4)


Many congrats Declan and well deserved. The Big O Band Wagon will be pulling into its first US stop in Autumn 2008, which is incidentally, around the same time as the first US port of call for the US edition of Borderlands. (Plug 5)

I did warn you it would get shameless...

Hell, I think you're entitled to a bit of a plug--and if you can't do it here...

The more I read about Borderlands the keener I am to track it down. It's moving towards the top of the list!

Hi Brian

Don't worry - this is the perfect place to promote and plug.

And fantastic news about Lost Child. On occasions, BBC radio features downloads of radio programmes on the ol' internet - will Lost Child be one of these - (for those poor buggers like me who don't leave the day-job until 5pm!)? If so, it might be an idea to post the link here for others to access...

Cheers

Matt

I'll be listening, Brian. Sounds great!

Hi folks

Thanks all for your good wishes. I'm looking forward to hearing the piece on Friday and also strangely uneasy about hearing Devlin speak in someone else's voice, if that makes sense?

Matt - the piece will be online for a week after broadcast, I think. I'll probably post a link from my site + here too if no one minds.

Blog away, Brian!

You mean there's Devlin stories, too? I'll have to check that out, seeing as your next novel is a ways down the road...
